Our aspiration is to unite the global community of doctors, scientists and other biomedical professionals who seek to shape healthcare through innovative careers outside of traditional clinical and research tracks.

We focus on 3 specific objectives:

  1. Connect members with great opportunities that leverage their unique backgrounds and experience
  2. Help employers rapidly source talent with highly specific biomedical and business experience
  3. Facilitate the exchange of ideas, insights and opportunities among our members

Ultimately we hope that this will help improve the healthcare system by placing those who understand the real content of healthcare in leadership positions.

DOC was founded as the Drop Out Club by former students of the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons then working at WebMD, Credit Suisse, and McKinsey & Company.

Initially a local networking group for doctors and scientists pursuing careers beyond traditional research and clinical tracks, DOC grew through member referrals to become the central global community for doctors and scientists pursuing innovative careers.

With this growth, employers increasingly looked to DOC to recruit top biomedical talent for careers in all areas of health care business, government, and non-profit, and DOC evolved from a networking group to the leading exchange between advanced biomedical talent and innovative employers. Along the way we changed our internet address from dropoutclub.org to DOCjobs.com to better reflect the active role we play in matching unique candidates to great employment opportunities.
